Description of Working Group:

  The Web Authorization (OAuth) protocol allows a user to grant a
  third-party web site or application access to the user's protected
  resources, without necessarily revealing their long-term credentials,
  or even their identity. For example, a photo-sharing site that
  supports OAuth could allow its users to use a third-party printing web
  site to print their private pictures, without allowing the printing
  site to gain full control of the user's account and without having the
  user share his or her photo-sharing sites' long-term credential with
  the printing site.

  The OAuth 2.0 protocol suite already includes

  * a procedure for enabling a client to register with an authorization
    server,
  * a protocol for obtaining authorization tokens from an authorization
    server with the resource owner's consent, and
  * protocols for presenting these authorization tokens to protected
    resources for access to a resource.

  This protocol suite has been enhanced with functionality for
  interworking with legacy identity infrastructure (such as SAML), token
  revocation, token exchange, dynamic client registration, token
  introspection, a standardized token format with the JSON Web Token, and
  specifications that mitigate security attacks, such as Proof Key for
  Code Exchange.

  The ongoing standardization efforts within the OAuth working group
  focus on increasing interoperability of OAuth deployments and to
  improve security. More specifically, the working group is defining proof
  of possession tokens, developing a discovery mechanism, providing
  guidance for the use of OAuth with native apps, re-introducing
  the device flow used by devices with limited user interfaces, additional
  security enhancements for clients communicating with multiple service
  providers, definition of claims used with JSON Web Tokens, techniques to
  mitigate open redirector attacks, as well as guidance on encoding state
  information.

  For feedback and discussion about our specifications please
  subscribe to our public mailing list at <oauth AT ietf.org>.

  For security related bug reports that relate to our specifications
  please contact <oauth-security-reports AT ietf.org>. If the reported
  bug report turns out to be implementation-specific we will attempt
  to forward it to the appropriate developers.
